SERVICE OPENS DOORS
A young man volunteered to drive me to a meeting out of my base. He is always that dutiful and full of honour. While he drove, I got a message that someone needed an expert in a particular area.
I only mentioned it in passing. Instantly, he said “Pastor, it is something I do and I can get it done”. I connected him with the source. Before I knew it, they were talking some huge figures. I was awed.
Service still opens doors. A man who serves cannot be stranded. He will get what others are gunning for through the seed of service. Your labour of love is never in vain. God still honours a heart that is willing to serve.
For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do.
Hebrews 6:10 NLT
Rebecca simply had a heart that was full of love and willing to serve. She was old enough for marriage but did not know that a simple act of kindness and service was the link to marrying Isaac and becoming a part of God’s eternal plan.
The business drought in Peter’s life ended when he gave his boat to Jesus. The business drought did not just end, he became eternally connected to God’s redemption plan as a major part of the early church.
While you are waiting for God to meet your needs, ask God to make you a channel to meet the needs of others. Greatness knocks on the doors of men who meet the needs of those around them.
Joseph was in prison but the doors of the palace responded through the needs of a man he met in prison.
Your tough time can be the password for a greatest breakthrough. If you know how to walk through a tough season, you will definitely walk into a better season.
While waiting for a miracle, trust God for opportunities to serve. Remember, when God wants to answer your prayers, He opens for you windows of opportunities.
